CareTech Solutions Takes Leadership Position on Healthcare Data Security
TROY, Mich., Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- CareTech Solutions (www.caretech.com), an information technology (IT) and Web products and services provider for more than 150 hospitals in the U.S., has further enhanced its IT data security credentials with another Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) qualification bestowed.
"As the industry continues its move to electronic medical records (EMR), privacy and data security considerations are even more imperative as patient information is shared between providers and payers," said Jim Giordano, president and CEO, CareTech Solutions. "Based on our role as the IT department for many hospitals, CareTech Solutions understands this issue first hand. In addition to managing and hosting hospital data from the company's two SAS 70 Type II accredited data centers, we believe it's our duty to also provide our hospital clients with CISSP knowledge and leadership so they can better manage IT security risks and protect the privacy of patients as required by law."
Director of Client Services, Jeff Bell, is the latest CareTech Solutions employee to earn the distinguished credential from the not-for-profit International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (ISC)2®. The CISSP was the first credential in the field of information security, accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Standard 17024:2003. CISSP certification is not only an objective measure of excellence, but a globally recognized standard of achievement. Currently, there are fewer than 70,000 CISSPs in the world.
